Behavior Management Institute 2023!

Team Applications Are Now Open! Apply Today!

Dr. Katie Azevedo, along with the Idaho Out-of-School Network, has designed the Behavior Management Institute (BMI) to provide research-based strategies to providers serving all ages of youth in an out-of-school time setting.

A well-managed learning environment is a foundation for positive relationships and academic success!

The training is intended to be a team approach to behavior management, and although it is recommended to have individuals attend from the same program/site location for an immersive experience, it is open to any combination of providers that identify as a team.

Summer of Innovation Grants 2023!

Grant reviewers are needed. Apply to be a reviewer today!

Idaho Out-of-School Network is seeking reviewers to help evaluate and select award applications for our Summer of Innovation Grant. This process will be conducted entirely online. Any community member who is at least 18 years old can apply to review award applications. ION is looking for a diverse group of reviewers and is focused on recruiting strong representation of individuals with experience or connection to youth development. Reviewer applications will be accepted until December 10th, 2022.

AFTERSCHOOL CHAMPION NOMINATION OPEN!

Annually, ION recognizes individuals who are Afterschool Champions. Its time to nominate a member of your community that has been a champion to youth in out-of-school programs!

TAKE THE POWER OF US SURVEY

We want to know more about those who are still in the youth fields so that we can explore, define, and elevate this collective workforce and their work. The information from the Power of Us Workforce Survey can also lead to action, informing policy, practice, and further research to better support the workforce. We believe that if we know more, we can do more.
